            Vanguard is greatYI will simply say one thing about the university, I enjoyed every minute of every class while I was attending Vanguard. It is a great school to meet new people but to also get very personalized help from each and every one of the professors while you attend classes. I wish I would have spent all four years there and was not just a transfer student.
